Make a Refreshing Turmeric and Coffee Smoothie

Summer’s not over yet – it’s still smoothie weather! Alison Carroll is the founder of AC Healthy Solutions and a distributor of TurmeriX. She’s based in Port Macquarie but you may have spotted her at markets in Laurieton, Forster, Pacific Palms and Gloucester. Coastbeat spoke to Alison about using the powerful powder in an icy drink.   

Alison Carroll’s turmeric journey started over four years ago when she sought relief from chronic knee pain. As she began to take turmeric, she noticed the pain subsiding. Alison says she was inspired to then share her experience with the aim of helping others.

“I’ve supported thousands of people as they use turmeric to overcome health challenges,” she explains. “There’s a lot of ancient wisdom and modern science surrounding its anti-inflammatory benefits.”

Many customers have asked Alison for tips on how to take turmeric, so she developed an ebook. ‘Turmeric the Magic of Curcumin’ contains information on the healing power of turmeric as well as some of Alison’s favourite turmeric-rich recipes.
